Location of Springhills, Ohio

Springhills is an unincorporated community in northwestern Harrison Township, Champaign County, Ohio, United States.[1] It lies at the intersection of State Route 245 with Crowl and Springhill-DeGraff Roads. Graves Creek, a subsidiary of the Great Miami River through Stony Creek, runs along the western edge of Springhills. It is located 6 miles (9.5 km) west of West Liberty and 11.5 miles (18.5 km) northwest of Urbana, the county seat of Champaign County.[2]

History[edit]

Springhills was originally known as Middleburg,[1] and under the latter name was laid out in 1832. When the post office was to be opened, it was discovered that there was already a Middleburg in Logan County, Ohio, and so the town was renamed Spring Hills for its location near natural springs and at the base of hills.[3][4]
